Prada came out with a new Spring Runway Collection, which features a series of shoes that could be either fiercely hot or wildly wrong, depending on your viewpoint. The black and red patent leather Prada Flame Wedge Sandal looks like it could be an accessory to a cheap pleather Devil costume. The flames go up the heel, around the ankle, and on top of the foot. All in all, there are too many flames on this shoe! A hint of something edgy usually works but this is over the top and probably not very wearable.
The Prada Rose-Toe Flame Sandal also has too much going on. The combination of too many red flames, the bright yellow coloring, and the red rose on the toe all in patent leather make it seem costume-y and a bit too loud. The Prada Flame Mule Slide, on the other hand, is a little bit better because it features a single pink flame coming out of the open back and a few flame details on the front. Its sleeker demeanor works way better, in my opinion, for housing this flame design. So, my advice for buying an edgy over-the-top shoe is to go with one that is simple but hosts one crazy feature in a subtle way, like in this third Prada heel.
